Wednesday morning the FBI searched President Joe Biden’s Beach house amid the investigation into his mishandling of classified documents. “Wednesday’s search marks the third publicly known time the FBI has searched a property associated with Biden as part of the documents probe” reports National Review.
Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel early January to oversee the investigation. Biden’s personal attorney announced the “President’s full support and cooperation” on the DOJ’s “planned search of his home in Rehoboth, Delaware.”
“Under DOJ’s standard procedures, in the interests of operational security and integrity, it sought to do this work without advance public notice, and we agreed to cooperate,” Bauer added.
“The search today is a further step in a thorough and timely DOJ process we will continue to fully support and facilitate. We will have further information at the conclusion of today’s search” he continued.
According to a statement from Biden’s lawyers, the first set of classified documents was found at the Penn Biden Center on November 2, 2022, which served as Biden’s private office from 2017 to 2019, after his time as vice president in the Obama administration.
Biden’s Delaware homes were then searched in January during which two additional sets of classified documents were found. One of the areas where the documents were found was in a storage space in his Wilmington garage. A fourth trove of dements was found by the FBI on January 20 in Biden’s Wilmington home.
With documents found in the office Biden used after his time as Vice President, it makes perfect sense that the Rehoboth Beach house is also searched, despite the fact that Biden purchased the vacation home after the Obama administration.

Historic House Vote Expels Rep. George Santos Amidst Scandal
In a turn of events, the House of Representatives made history on Friday with a vote to expel Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.), marking the first such expulsion in over two decades. A moment fraught with gravity unfolded as Speaker Mike Johnson wielded his gavel to formalize Santos’ removal, setting a precedent in congressional annals.
Santos, indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, and other charges, has not faced conviction but stands accused of misusing campaign funds for opulent purchases. The bipartisan vote, tallying 311 to 114, signaled robust support for expulsion, with a marginally higher number of Republicans opting to retain Santos.
Questions loomed as Speaker Johnson left the chamber, his silence leaving the fate of the ongoing government spending battle uncertain. According to reports from Fox News, Democratic Rep. Steny Hoyer emphasized the non-partisan nature of the decision, asserting that members concluded Santos had tarnished the House’s reputation and was unfit for representation.
Within the GOP, conflicting opinions emerged, with Rep. Darrell Issa arguing against expulsion, citing the presumption of innocence. The tight-lipped stance of the House Ethics Committee played a pivotal role in the deliberations.
Conversely, members of the New York Republican delegation, led by Rep. Marc Molinaro, asserted Santos’ commission of crimes, justifying expulsion based on a comprehensive investigation.
Santos himself predicted the outcome in an exclusive morning interview on “FOX & Friends.” This vote not only underlines the House’s rare use of expulsion powers but also sets a critical precedent in handling members facing severe legal challenges.
